Does anyone else feel like nature is forcing us to get back to basics? As "SANDY" knocks on the door of the East Coast, with people still feeling the effects of "IRENE", these epic storms and other natural disasters forces everyone to stop. Simply stop....take stock in what we have and reconnect with who we are.....Our social media, smart phones, all modern day conveniences keep us from connecting on a deep level, the only level that matters, with what is most important, our inner core (soul) and those that we love. As horrible as everyone remembers last OCT. was, I also remember comments from people enjoying their time with their families surrounded by candle light and lanterns, "camping out" in their homes, playing board games, catching up on sleep, simply being.
Maybe, just maybe if we governed ourselves a bit more with (critical thinking, independent thought, etc.) guarded our thoughts and judgements and became disciplined enough to have solid, healthy boundaries as to how we live our lives, Mother Nature wouldn't have the need to step in and "slap us" out of our disconnected trance of life. Another school of thought is that our collective trance is actually creating these storms. Food for thought and can be discussed at another time.....
Regardless of the cause, I am sending positive intentions for all of us to find the silver lining in what is to be the result where "SANDY" is concerned.
